Retired CFL quarterback, educator and coach, Frank Cosentino has written an enchanting folk story that sees long-dead NHLers "infusing" themselves into Team Canada hockey players when the hockey Gods feared the home team was in mortal danger of losing the 1972 Canada-Soviet hockey summit.
Cosentino was a renowned quarterback who played 10 years in the Canadian Football League (CFL) with Hamilton, Edmonton and Toronto.
As a player he was a member of five Grey Cup teams, winning twice with Hamilton.
Now a prolific author and Professor Emeritus at York University
has created a supernatural tale that provides a unique and celestial twist to what is considered the greatest hockey series ever played.
This is Cosentino's 15th book.
After he retired from the CFL, he taught and coached at the University of Western Ontario for six years where his teams twice won Vanier Cups.
He joined Toronto's York University as professor and chair of Physical Education and Athletics.
